Basketballteam "Renju".  

Ando Meritee had idea to gather basketballteam of Estonia 

renjuplayers and start to play in Tallinn basketball amateur league. 

It seemed to be a bit crazy idea :), but we made it and we have 

already played 5 games and lost them all. Last game was 73:107, even 

29 points from Johann Lents didnt help us :). Except Johann (Johancik) 

and Ando we have in our team Timo Ilu, Margus Tuvikene, Marek Kolk, 

me and some less known renjuplayers. Tunnet Taimla, Aivo Oll and Glen 

Liventaal have helped with being secretaries of our games, but will 

hopefully join our team after some years. We have also nice 

basketball-shirts with numbers and letters - "renju" (in estonian) in 

dark-blue and orange colour. We are thinking to make some more T- 

shirts, also for some fans, like Irene Karlsson :). Price depends on 

amount of wishers, its about 10-12 EUR per shirt. If someone wants to 

get, please let me know what size and number is wanted before 

December 15. 

 

Friendly, Ants

  - SWEDISH CHAMPIONSHIP IN FIVE-IN-A-ROW 

_____________________________________________________________________



SWEDISH CHAMPIONSHIP IN FIVE-IN-A-ROW 

 

9-10 of October the Swedish Five-in-a-row championship was played in 

Hogsjo. Several of the players have not been seen in tournaments 

before, but have been playing on internet for a long time. One of 

these players was Kjetil Nossum from Norway. He thus became the first 

Norwegian to compete in an official tournament. 

 

The tournament was exiting as the lead shifted many times during the 

9 rounds. Martin Carlsson, Fredrik Ternerot, Anders Bertilsson and 

Bjorn Lind looked as potential winners from time to time. But with a 

row of nice wins in the final rounds Peter Jonsson won the tournament. 

This was Peter's first win in a Swedish championship after about 20 

years of trying. Bjorn Lind finished second one point behind Peter 

and Anders Bertilsson was third. In fourth place came a nice surprise 

as Jorgen Rehnstedt played probably his best tournament ever. 

 

Only 15 year-old Elin Dahlin played very well in the beginning of the 

tournament. She had some very hard encounters with the best players 

but was unlucky to lose some long games when time was running out. 

Her final placing of 23rd did not reflect the playing strength that 

she showed.

6. Aivo Oll      0,5 

  

Ando needed to leave earlier, so first was played his last round game 

with Andry. Ando won, but it his last and only win in tournament. In 

first round Ando and Tunnet met. Ando put i8 and was able to defend, 

but didnt play in best way and lost. Timo beat Aivo  and Johann was a 

bit lucky against Andry. Second round - Ando put i8 again - against 

Johann. Ando defended easily and had also easy win, but missed it. 

Tunnet beat Timo and Andry Aivo without any big problems. Third round 

- Ando played with Aivo, he set up D11, as usually. Ando didnt swap 

and Aivo played just for draw, without trying to win. And he got draw. 

Tunnet won Johann and Timo Andry. In fourth round Ando was totally 

lost his concentration and lost quickly his game with Timo (i11). 

Tunnet beat Andry (i11) and Johann Aivo (D6 as white). In last round 

Tunnet won very quickly against Aivo and Timo for 2nd place against 

Johann. 

 

Results in First league (only 4 players):

unfortunately Oblikas and Lillemets were not able to play in final. 

  

Estonian Cup. 

  

Semifinal between Tunnet Taimla and Ants Soosyrv was played: 

  

1. game Taimla - Soosyrv, 1-0, i11,R. Tunnet had initiative whole 

game and however I had chances to get draw in the end, I made final 

mistake. 

  

2. game Soosyrv-Taimla, 1-0, D11,R . I decided to swap this time to 

get iniative. I was very lucky to get point, because Tunnet repeated 

the game Kawamura - Chen Shoude from ORC tournament. 

  

3. Soosyrv - Taimla 0-1, D3. I decided to change tactics and start 

was good. I had quite good attack and very good chances to get draw, 

but finally I made really stupid mistake... 

  

4. Taimla -Soosyrv 0-1, D3. Tunnet also changed tactics. This game 

was similar with third one, but sides were changed. Tunnet attacked, 

but finally made very stupid mistake. 

  

5. Soosyrv-Taimla 1-0, D3 . I made quite stupid attack, but Tunnet 

missed best defences in time-trouble... He could easily defend and 

get big advantage. 

  

So, final score was Soosyrv-Taimla 3-2 

  

Ando Meritee and Johann Lents have played only one game 

  

Lents-Meritee 0-1, D3. Ando got quickly initiative and Johann made 

lot of mistakes...

NORDIC RENJU CUP 

 

Last weekend during Helsinki Open three countries (Estonia, Finland 

and Sweden) established a new renju cup for Baltic area. The cup is 

called Nordic Renju Cup (Abb. NRC). The purpose of NRC is to unite 

renju tournaments located in Baltic area into a common cup. Also a 

committee (with one member from each member country) was established 

to maintain and develop NRC. 

 

As the matter of future renju rules has been on table for quite some 

time, NRC tournaments will help on testing some of the serious new 

renju rules. In other words the NRC tournaments in the year 2005 

will be with testing rules. NRC committee has asked RIF Rules 

Commission a suggestion for testing rules and considering their 

recommendation NRC tournament rules for the year 2005 will be 

decided. 

 

NRC tournaments on 2005:  

 

Feb    Baltic League in Stockholm 

Sep    Helsinki Open 

Dec    Tallinn Open  

 

Everyone is invited to play and enjoy renju for all of the tournaments!  

 

More NRC info will be announced later.

VOSU CUP AND ESTONIAN CUP QUARTERFINALS



As last year we had again camp in small Estonian place named Vosu.

This year without Ando and Finnish players. We had RIF international

rating tournament (last year only quick tournaments), but time

control was shortest possible - 30 min per game. 8 players took part

in main tournament and results were following (July 3.-5., Vosu,

Round Robin 7 games):



1. Ants Soosyrv     6

2. Tunnet Taimla    6

3. Johann Lents     5

4. Timo Ilu         4

5. Kaia Kolk        3

6. Andry Purk       3

7. Rauni Lillemets  1 

8. Sander Sulane    0 

  

Johann and Tunnet had most interesting game. Johann had very strong 

attack and probably could win, but finally Tunnet won. Johann lost 

also against Timo, but beat easily me. I was very lucky against Andry 

and Tunnet, they made crazy mistakes in about equal position, where I 

had less time. 

 

Biggest sensation was success of Kaia. She beat Timo, Rauni and 

Sander! We had also competition between hostelrooms (where we lived). 

I lived together with Johann and Kaia and 5 other players in second 

room. My room was lucky to win 11- 4 :). 

 

We had also blitztournament with Tarannikovs (5 revers) rules. 

Results: 

1. Ants 6   2. Tunnet 5   3. Timo 3   4. Andry 3   5. Rauni 2 

6. Kaia 1   7. Sander 1 

 

One night Tunnet and Andry were analysing one position and started to 

dispute, how to play. Finally they started to play that position and 

Tunnet was agree to give title of World Champion to Andry, if he win :) 

Finally Andry won, so You can congratulate him as new champion :))) 

 

Some days ago we finished quarterfinals of Estonian Cup. In last 

match Tunnet beat Andry 3-0. Other results were Ando-Rauni 3-0, 

Johann-Timo 3-0 and Ants-Aivo 3-1. Quite soon Tunnet and I will play 

semifinal. Ando and Johann will play later in this autumn.

RESULT OF SWEDISH CHAMPIONSHIP IN BLITZ, 21.02.2004  

 

The Swedish Championship in blitz took place on the 21st of February 

and was held in a newdiscovered renjutown, Linkoping. The competition 

has traditionally been a popular event among renju players and this 

year was not an exception. Totally 18 players had gathered to 

struggle for the title, amongst which many players with a more modest 

tournament experience or who have been away from active playing for a 

while. 

 

The competition was held in two stages: 1) by drawing of lots were 

formed three groups. The playing system was round robin with two 

games with each player, 2) according to the results from the first 

stage was formed new groups consisting of six players. New round 

robin, but this time with 4 games per match. Time per game was 5 

minutes. 

 

Similarly to the previous year, Stefan Karlsson became the winner of 

the tournament. He assured his victory already before the last round 

against Martin Carlsson who achieved the silver medal. At bronze was 

Peter Jonsson, who was very near to not to continue among the six 

best from the first stage. Hans Sjostedt's sixth place was a nice 

surprise. 

 

Many thanks to Bengt Nyberg for a well organised competition and 

thanks to both Bengt and Gun Nyberg for a wonderful lunch at your 

home! 

 

Here come the final standings (points are given after round robin in 

each group):

  - RENJUNET PORTAL 

_____________________________________________________________________



RENJUNET PORTAL 

 

On January 27, 2004, the RenjuNet Portal was open at the address 

www.renju.net This is one of the central gates that unites the world 

of renju, offers up-to-date information about world's renju, offers 

lots of links about the game servers, renju info servers, renju 

software, libraries, etc. I am planning to add the photo gallery 

there soon, too. The good thing about renjunet is that all the items 

have a detailed description, therefore the user can easily learn what 

can be expected on the linked website. 

 

Besides those links, the RenjuNet offers 4 main original services: 

 

1) the guide for renju newcomers (rules, tutorial, puzzles) 

 

2) the complete page about all the world championships in renju, also 

   lots of information about european championships (it is really a 

   huge section, and I created it nearly 5 months). the 2003 updates 

   are not added there yet. 

 

3) the detailed explanation about RIF - about the organisation, about 

   members, about activities, etc. (the 2003 updates are not added 

   there yet) 

 

4) the communication center - long list of email contacts of world's 

   renju players, and the guestbook where people can post messages 

   (and later even edit or delete them if needed). 

 

Since it is all self made environment, you do not see any annoying 

advertisement banners there. The server hosting for RenjuNet is 

provided by Farmer Lu, Taiwan. All the announcements, if any, are 

related to renju. 

 

RenjuNet cannot become perfect by one man's effort only. Therefore, I 

hope you all join, and make this portal as complete as possible. If 

you have any articles, puzzles, links, programs (with permissions), 

databases (with permissions), analyses and more, then please contact 

me by email ando@renju.net and I will add your material to the portal. 

 

Translations are also welcome. Thanks to the great work of several 

Renjuclass students, all the World Championship pages were translated 

into Chinese and they will be published soon in RenjuNet. 

 

Welcome to RenjuNet. Feel free to express your opinion in our 

guestbook. Good ideas and suggestions will help the portal become 

better. Renju is growing much faster thanks to Internet. A good 

portal can help to bring new members to renju. Let us all work 

together in making renju game more famous in the world.
